Politico’s Dylan Byers reported on Tuesday that “Vice President Joe Biden would take questions from reporters on a White House press call today, and as has been the case in the past, the on-the-record conversation will be embargoed until the end of the call. The curious caveat he says “barring reporters from the beloved habit of tweeting remarks in real-time. White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest emailed: "The embargo will allow journalists to hear the entirety of the Vice President’s remarks and get the benefit of having their questions answered -- before trying to condense a 30-minute conference call about a 20-page NEC report into a 140 characters."
